Around the World in 80 Days
With his excitable French manservant in tow, Fogg undertakes the exercise immediately, with no preparations, trusting that his traveling funds will make up for delays along the way. But unbeknownst to him, British police are desperately seeking to arrest him for the theft of a huge sum by someone who resembles him, and they will track him around the world, if necessary, to apprehend him.
This is an adventure novel of the first water, with wholly unexpected perils, hair-breadth escapes, brilliant solutions to insoluble problems, and even a love story. And can this be? - That he returns to London just five minutes too late to win his wager and retain his fortune?

Subject: a First Class, Flawless Reading
Subject: A most pleasurable voyage!
I see that Librivox offers several readings of this book but I would recon that "Mark Smith, From Simpsonville, South Carolina"'s reading will be a tough one to beat. Five Star!
Subject: Reader is "of the first water" (to quote from him)
Far beyond such troublesome experiences are the readings of Mark Smith, which we have here another applaudable example of, always a benefit to the ear, and a blessing for Librivox. If you buy an audio-book, you are always in danger to have to listen to a voice, articulation, or pronunciation you don´t like - not so here, and it is for free! Sound quality is now as well "cum summa laude" even at 64 Kbps.
